    I've tried a few mag couplers over the years and my favorite to date is the Magpul MagLink. Here's what I've found while using it over the last few months:

    Pros:
    -Durable. This mag coupler has held up to banging around in my range bag, swapping mags many times, and all the shooting I can dish out to it without missing a beat.
    -USA made
    -For those living in states that don't respect The Constitution with their magazine capacity limits, it gives you a way to have an extra mag at the ready.
    -Works with both the MOE Pmag and the GEN M3 Pmags
    -Easy to put together
    -Can be configured in a couple ways so it doesn't interfere with manipulating the controls of the AR for both right and left handed ARs
    -Very lightweight
    -Cost. I picked it up for $14.95 shipped


    Cons:
    -Weight. Having 60 rounds hanging from your rifle increases the weight; no getting around that.
    -Some people that have used it think changing mags is awkward. I haven't found that but your mileage may vary....

    Here's a video with some shooting, mag changes, and a discussion of the products hits and misses:

    Thanks for the review. I just received one Fri. Have not used but did assemble the combo....and did that wrong. I had one up and one down. Well made and durable.

    I've never used any mag coupler that is this solid. It feels like a single unit, and doesn't have the sharp edges of others I've tried, and doesn't flex at all.

    It does take some practice to use it quickly. Excellent product.

    I have one myself and it is a solid coupler for Pmags. No rattle between the coupled mags and for the most part does not interfere with AR functions.

    I see you coupled your mags unevenly. I thought about that but chose to couple my mags evenly instead. I think it works better if you plan to shoot on the bench or table.
